Red Notice 2 Script Update From Director Rawson Marshall Thurber

Warning: Spoilers are discussed during the interview.

Shortly before Red Notice started streaming and broke the record for the biggest opening weekend in Netflix history, I spoke with writer-director Rawson Marshall Thurber about the making of the film. While I already posted most of the interview where he talked about the original ending, how he came up with the MacGuffin, casting Dwayne Johnson, Gal Gadot, and Ryan Reynolds, and so much more, it’s now time to share the final part of the conversation where we talked spoilers.

If you’ve seen Red Notice, you know at the end of the film, the big reveal is Johnson and Gadot have been working together the whole time, which shocks Reynolds’ character because he didn’t see it coming (along with most of the audience).

During the interview, Marshall Thurber reveals how he pitched Johnson on the movie, how he decided to star in the film after hearing the ending, and the way he’s been teasing the big twist on Instagram since 2018. In addition, he talks about why he picked the Louvre in Paris as the location to end the movie, setting up the twist without giving too much away, and more.

Finally, for fans of Red Notice that are curious about a sequel, Marshall Thurber told me while he doesn’t have a script, he’s definitely thinking about it:

“I’m not working on the script for a sequel…I’ve certainly been noodling with what I would do for a follow-up and not to telltale out of school but yeah Netflix…we’ve been having those conversations.”

Watch what he had to say above and below is exactly what we talked about.
